Spicy Ginger Swiss Chard

Warning! This recipe is spicy!  Even my hot sauce fiending husband said, “that’s really spicy!” so if you are ‘allergic’ to spice than fugetaboutit. If you like spice, your biggest dilemma is choosing between using 1 or 2 jalapeños. I used 2!


  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 jalapeños, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 1 large bunch Swiss Chard—rinsed, and cut into ribbons + pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt + pepper, to taste

Jalepeno - Lemon - Cumin - Ginger


In a skillet–heat a splash of oil, jalepenos, ginger + cumin.  Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
